A prime mover only shifts the problem;
If every complex structure needs an architect
Then this prime mover must be even more complex
Than anything he created

Who made your architect? Who made your architect?
Where does he come from? What is he made of?
Who made your architect? Who made your architect?
Where does he come from? What is he made of?

Who made your architect? Who made your architect?
Where does he come from? What is he made of?
Who made your architect? Who made your architect?
Where does he come from? What is he made of?

Who made your architect? Who made your architect?
Where does he come from? What is he made of?
Who made your architect? Who made your architect?
Where does he come from? What is he made of?

Who made your architect? Who made your architect?
Where does he come from? What is he made of?

    Song Meaning'Every complex structure needs an architect'.

    They are referring to the fact that everything we see around us, from the smallest particles to the most massive nebulae that swallow galaxies whole, all come from the same source. Imagine the universe as a giant cosmic watch - but this watch has an almost infinite number of cogs and gears. If one of these tiny parts were to break or slip then the whole would cease to work.
    Some believe that we are here among this matrix of storms and stars purely by coincidence, they argue that probability dictates intelligent life must eventually arise from the universe's infinite variety. But could a series of laws of structures as finely tuned as the ones that keep us alive (and evolving, some say) have really come about by chance? Was the watchmaker blind, so to speak?
    If on the other hand, we were created on purpose, then our architect must be 'even more complete than anything he created'. We are the universe made conscious of itself, one small facet of the whole - but the universe is but one small part of the architect.
    When i talk of the architect, or 'god', i am not referring to the god of christian or any other faith; only the force than enabled us and everything to be here. Each religion may have some small hint of the truth, but they are really just different interpretations of the same theme.

    'Who made your architect? Where does he come from? What is he made of?'
    A profound question indeed, and one we will never answer.
